Absolutely stunning views, due to high levels of rain this water running was stunning. The traffic can be extremely busy, so ensure you attend with patience.

My husband and I drove to the Dam in January. Beautiful scenery although the litter along the roadside, spoils the experience. The cable car trip that followed was the highlight. Recommended!

The roads are in a state and security is some concern.The traffic is very bad. Watch out for crooks at the tunnel selling goods. Keep windows closed and dont make eye contact with these people.

The area around the dam wall is very unkempt and untidy, however the views of the water are well worth a stop.

You can only access the dam if you have your own boat or if you go for a boat ride. These costs varies based on what you want to do. Else you can view the dam by parking your car on the side of the road.
